But more recently, we’ve explored deeper into our community to find the best ingredients for our dishes. We’re sourcing fresh, seasonal ingredients from local farmers, fishermen, and artisans.
The closer that we get to the source of our food, the better it is for us and for this planet. ~ Alice Waters
